Always good to see the lack of support for this potential "disaster in the making".:)

I'm not surprised. They have spent a ton of money bashing the snot out of it.

Decide for yourself. Here is what American Rivers.org had to say.

"In what would be North America’s largest open-pit mineral mine, initial proposals reveal at least one open pit mine roughly two miles wide and 1,700 feet deep, and a cave mine extending 5,000 feet below the surface. At least two earthen dams [each taller than the Hoover Dam] are proposed to hold back an estimated 10 billion tons of waste and would be built on a known earthquake zone. In addition, the project could consume up to 35 billion gallons of water per year, potentially drying up 60 miles of fish habitat."
